Top tips for a St Ives self-catering holiday

Katy Peck

Trips to the tip of the South West are not like they were 20 years ago, modern convenience has finally caught up in even the farthest flung reaches of the Cornish County…

This is not to say that you should become complacent and think that you will find all the most modern conveniences on your doorstep, this includes there not being a well-known superstore at the end of every St Ives Terrace, instead, you will find it on your drive into St Ives, perched at the top of Carbis Bay overlooking St Ives Bay.

Sail Lofts aiding in a hassle free holiday

This pit stop can be a perfect place to pick up last minute essentials on your way into St Ives, prior to commencing your luxury self-catering holiday in St Ives, but what if it could be even easier than this, and for you to turn up to find all of your holiday essentials ready and awaiting your arrival in your holiday accommodation?

At the Sail Lofts in St Ives the team run a concierge service and can unpack online deliveries from the majority of supermarkets prior to your arrival, including deliveries from Sainsbury’s, Asda and Tesco, however should you prefer a more local take on your weekly shop why not try a fresh food delivery from the Cornish Food Market, and sample some of the best local produce from the Southwest.

No need for compromise

Lets now consider packing preparations, if like me, you are part of a large family and find it hard to even fit in all members of the family into the car let alone enough clothes for a week of English weather, you most certainly are not going to prioritise fitting in beach supplies. No quintessential great British Holiday is complete without a day at the beach, and St Ives is home to some of England’s finest, including Porthmeor, Porthminster and Porthgwidden.

Never fear however, should you have sadly left body boards, buckets, spades and your trusty windbreak at home due to having to choose between your own suitcase or the youngest child to fit in the car, the Sail Lofts have you covered. The onsite wet room, found in the central courtyard of the luxury apartments in St Ives holds stock of all of your beach basics, ready for a great day playing in the surf and relaxing on the Beach, guests will also find a beach towel for every family member rolled and ready for the beach by the front door of their luxury apartment along with use of a windbreak wide enough for the whole family.

It’s the small things on a holiday that make the difference between having a good day and a great day, and the Sail Lofts have you covered to aid in making every day an exceptional day in St Ives at their luxury self-catering apartments in Cornwall.
